The 4th International Linux Audio Conference is quite fun, we got many interesting comments on our Beast Demo (here’s also a Beast Paper from the 2005 proceedings). One of the most requested feature seems to be Jack support for Beast. To quote Stefan on the conference: “Some talks were really cool, for example the Reverb stuff Fons Adriaensen is working on.” And he’s quite right: Fons wants to build up a free database of impulse responses of halls and rooms the community has access to, so reverb applications can offer a list of interesting room characteristics to choose from, and he’s providing free software and giving workshops to enable people to do those measurements.
